If you're wanting to DOWNLOAD much faster from someone else, Freecache won't help you at all.

What you could do is to write to the person hosting the file and suggest that they use Freecache by prepending "http://freecache.org/" to their links. Then you will have to wait a while before their file is cached well.

This is probably explained MANY times, but, Freecache is really aimed at website owners who do not have the ability to run P2P services and who do not want to make their users install more software.

Freecache is not a download accelerator.

It could very well be that you are using the full capacity of your bandwidth and nothing will speed it up any more.

I am always maxed out with my dialup 56k, nothing will speed me up anymore, downloading at 5 k to 10k sometimes.
